Default Homemade dog bed questions

Hello!

I didn't know where else to put this question so here I am. I've tried plenty of dog beds, but they are never the right size or what have you so I'm going to make my own.

I live in Alaska, but that doesn't prevent my Bear from over heating pretty easily. Should I use memory foam for comfort for him? Or just regular stuffing and foam pads one can find in any store? Should I use fleece for the outer layer or something more permeable if I'm going to use memory foam? Will I have to treat it with anything so I don't have to worry about pests or anything?

I am aware this is a bit of a strange question, but most of my friends are cat owners and are of little help.

Thanks!
